The high demand for environmentally conscious facility management places new challenges on carpet cleaning. Most facilities still use hot water extraction systems to clean carpets, resulting in a high water demand and contaminated waste water.
Whittaker has the solution to help save water: the Smart Care® System. Using low moisture encapsulation cleaning, the Smart Care® System puts less demand on your facility’s water consumption while saving time, money, and ensuring every square foot of carpet looks its best. Simply mix our CRYSTAL® Chemistry formulas with the proper amount of water, spray on the carpet, and agitate with a Smart Care® machine. After a short dry time (about 30 minutes), vacuum the encapsulated dirt and soil away.
Our systems, combined with CRYSTAL® Quick RestoreTM chemistry, achieves the same results as hot water extraction while using 3 to 12 times less water than leading competitors.
* Annual gallons consumed based on 250,000 square feet cleaned quarterly.
In addition to conserving water, the Smart Care® System increases productivity with easy to use machines. See the table below for a comparison of spray nozzle flow rates and productivity between Whittaker machines and walk behind extractors.
